Plumbing List is Getting Long

We’ve been limping along with some undone and broken down plumbing situations.

We need the water supply to the Cottage bathroom restored.

I have decided to bite the bullet and just call a plumber.

The waterline just above the curtain rod is busted so we can't even turn on the water to the Cottage.

These plumbing issues might be costly but I’m hoping that bundling them will same some money.

I’m planning to call today to set this up.

Have you got plumbing issues? How are you mending it?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Life will be better when those things are crossed off your list. I hope the bundling plan works! I have a list of electrical wishes, but nothing that needs to be done – just wants, not needs.

  2. If you need a new heater for the cottage would it make sense just to get a heat pump and have air conditioning while you’re at it? I think they’re now efficient enough to work in northeastern winters.

    1. The cottage is so small that a window air conditioner cools the whole place. Hope we don’t need a new propane furnace. Jo
